“We’re thrilled to have Off to the Races back on the air,” said Frank Vespe, owner and publisher of The Racing Biz, which presents the program. “We’re looking forward to another season filled with great guests, good banter, and plenty of laughs.”

Saturday’s show will feature a visit from trainer Mike Trombetta, as well as previews of the key Laurel Park stakes on Saturday.

Maryland stalwart Mike Trombetta has won more than 2,000 races in his career, with his horses earning over $70 million. He’s finished in the top 30 by wins nationally six times. His top runners include 2006 Preakness runner-up Sweetnorthernsaint and 2020 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint runner-up Wet Your Whistle. He also won the Grade 1 Forego in 2020 with Win Win Win. Trombetta currently trains Joe, the morning line favorite in Saturday’s Private Terms.
